Latino lendingOvercoming Small Business Financing Hurdles
September 30, 2014, Online

Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., and they are among the most entrepreneurial of all groups. There are more than 3 million Latino-owned companies, and the figure is predicted to double in five years. Overall, Latino companies are now generating an estimated $500 billion in annual sales. However, Latino entrepreneurs face steeper challenges than others in securing financing and are more likely to borrow money from high interest, non-bank lenders. In conjunction with National Hispanic Month (September 15 – October 15, 2014), Biz2Credit has assembled a panel on Tuesday, Sept. 30th at 3:00 p.m. (EDT) that brings together some of the nation’s top experts in Latino business growth, entrepreneurship, and small business financing.
